Gradually Closing The Gap Between Fanboy And Obsessive Nut

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , Jun 11 2012 · 103 views

Well, so, from previous entries you've probably gathered I've been spicing up my room a little with posters. Posters that still don't want to stay up. I think thumbtacks will be called upon soon. But now that my room has been decorated with images of the Avengers and Ezio Auditore Da Firenze, I felt what I needed was something a little more...arty. Something not a poster at all, but still appeals to something I hold close to my heart. And then during one bored search on eBay, I saw it. I realised what I needed and instantly knew that I had to have it. So I dished out the £14.99 necessary, and the canvas was on its way. I imagine most of you have already guessed what it is, I know I would have. So without further ado, I introduce you all to the latest feature on my wall.

So now I wonder how many other ways I can express my obsessive love for this game. Who wants to place bets on how long it'll be until I start cosplaying?

Ooh, and I updated the custom content block to the side to fit in a few other awesome things. Expect further updates.

Seriously? Like...seriously?

I wouldn't call today a particularly bad day, but a very frustrating one. It appears everything around me has either broken or gone missing. The right ear of my earphones has decided to go for an early retirement, which is made worse by the fact I've seemingly misplaced the HMV insurance on those things. Not having that means I lose the £60 I would have gotten back from the earphones getting damaged. During the hunt for that I then stepped on the lap tray I sometimes keep my laptop on when it needs more ventilation, which resulted in a lot of glass covering my floor. Then I decided it was time to make use of the Wii for the first time in weeks, only to discover that the sensor bar has somehow broken, and I'll need a replacement of that, which isn't too bad given they're about £5. Oh, and those bloody posters still won't stay up.

Still...On a lighter note, I think I might finish Solatorobo tonight if I keep at it. I'm not sure I want to, though. Y'now, see if I could savour it some more. It earnt a lot more of my respect in a scene where the history of the lands and characters was explained and achieved a NieR-level of deepness. I was impressed.

Who would have thought the simple act of hanging posters up could be so infuriating. I can only wonder what my father must have been thinking, hearing the frustrated growls echoing from my room.

And they're still bloody lopsided.

On The Best Kept Secrets

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , Jun 07 2012 · 91 views

Crikey, it's been more than a month since I last posted a chapter, hasn't it? That really annoys me, as my original intention was to right at least a chapter a week, which quite clearly hasn't been the case. I could blame it on writers block, but I'm not sure if that's even it. I just don't feel motivated and whatever I write, I'm not happy with and end up erasing.

Thing is, that doesn't mean I've abandoned it. Not at all, if anything, I miss it. What's been stuck in my head lately has been the sequel to TBKS, The Darkest Hour, which I've now managed to fully lay out and am actually quite pleased with. Obviously there's a heck of a lot of room for development, but there is in everything I do. That's why I write these things, to practise, to test my creative writing skills and find those areas that I need to improve on, and even in the 17 chapters I've written so far, I've learnt a lot.

But I feel that having scenes for TDH stuck in my hand is crippling my ability to write its predecessor. By focusing on the sequel, I'm obviously looking at the more entertaining portions and wishing I could write them. But obviously I can't as I have to focus on TBKS, which I still consider very interesting, but not the "in thing" at the moment, if you will. Worst of all is how it's not only TDH that's been distracting me, but my head seems more full of ideas than I can deal with. I've been developing ideas for a dozen backstories and two other epics, all based upon my RPG characters. The same RPG characters from the BZPRPG, which I have once again seemingly neglected. I probably should stop doing that.

I guess I could say I'll force myself to finish the chapter tomorrow, but I get the feeling that will result in one very dissatisfactory piece of writing. Not that I won't try.

Also, Hinder. Why had I never gotten this guy's albums before?

A Word Of Advice

Don't bother with gaming laptops, unless you want an overpriced waffle iron. Watching this thing reach 89 degrees celcius during a game of Starcraft II is just painful.
